We Know Now How Much The Audi RS5 Coupe Will Cost In The US


Where does the RS5 sit amongst its rivals?

Audi has been on a product onslaught with its RS-branded performance models. The RS3 and TT RS are fantastic and now Audi has finally released pricing for its BMW M4 and Mercedes C63 Coupe rival, the RS5. We've for a while now, and now we know how much it will cost in the US. The RS5 carries an MSRP of $69,900 (excluding a $975 destination charge). This makes the RS5 more expensive than the base M4 or C63, but there is more to consider than base price alone.

The RS5 is powered by a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 with 444 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque. The Audi's V6 produces more power than the BMW's 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six (425 hp), but 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 (469 hp). The BMW is available with 444 hp with the Competition Pack, but at a cost of $4,750 over the base price of $68,700. Likewise, the C63 can be had with 503 hp, but for $75,500 compared to the base car at $67,500. It is also important to note the Audi is the only car available with AWD (either standard or optional). This may not mean much to enthusiasts who like to do burnouts, but it could help the RS5 sell well in cold climates.

The RS5 also comes more well-equipped than the M4 or C63. The interior comes standard with a flat-bottomed sport steering wheel, stainless steel pedals and 12-way power front sport seats covered in leather and Alcantara with heating and massage functions. The RS5 also comes standard with tri-zone automatic climate control. Audi doesn't skimp on safety either. Even the base RS5 still has driver assistance systems including side assist, rear cross traffic assist and a pre sense city system, which can automatically brake the vehicle if it detects a collision. The RS5 certainly looks like a worthy competitor in the performance coupe segment.
